Love those White Sox
You can put it on the board - YES. Podsednik - 500 at bats this year and no home runs. Then, the blast to right-center field in the bottom of the 9th: 7-6. What a game! How about Konerko's jolt in the bottom of the 7th; down 4-2 with the bases loaded. Love those White Sox who now take a 2-0 lead on the Astros as the SERIES shifts to Houston. This team does not quit. There is no mountain high enough. Talk about blue collar - this team just knows how to win. They manufacture runs and wins better than any other production machine of the day.
It was a cold and rainy night at Comiskey (US Cellular)Park on the South Side. The gametime temperature was in the 30's. Chilllllll-eeeeee! Then, the shot heard around Chicago in the bottom of the 9th. What a game! What a battle! He put some good wood on that pitch. Talk about post-season power. Not a better time.
It's been 88 long years (1917 to be exact). Give credit to Houston. They just don't quit. But neither do the WHITE SOX. Bring it home guys. Two more to go.
